25. What privatization???? I don't understand...

...what you mean by that. When a public school buys desks and chairs from a corporation they aren't being "privatized". When it buys software from a software vendor, it isn't being "privatized". Standardizing an educational data base product so that software developers have an open access mechanism for plugging into it (if that is what is going on here) isn't "privatizing" public education.

Maybe you could explain a bit more why you consider this to be "privatization".
